Leiden-Delft Electrochem2015 meeting



13:00-17:00 hrs


Science center TU Delft, Mekelzaal (first floor), Mijnbouwstraat 120, Delft


Electrochem2015 aims to bring together all researchers of the TU Delft and Leiden University that use electrochemical techniques. The researchers have a very diverse background ranging from biotechnology to material engineering. During the event they may benefit from sharing knowledge and experience. And perhaps this may lead to fruitful collaborations.


13.00 opening

13.15 keynote lecture Phil Bartlett (Univ Southampton)

Phil Bartlett is currently the Head of the Electrochemistry Section, Deputy Head of Chemistry for Strategy, and Associate Dean for Enterprise in the Faculty of Natural and Environmental Sciences at the University of Southampton (UK). Phil's research interests focus on the templated electrodeposition of nanostructured materials and on bioelectrochemistry.

He is the author or co-author of over 280 refereed journal publications and author with J. W. Gardner of "Electronic Noses, Principles and Applications" (1999), editor of the English translation of "Semiconductor Photoelectrochemistry" by Pleskov and Gurevich (1986) and editor of "Bioelectrochemistry. Fundamentals and Applications" (2008). He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and was elected as a Fellow of the International Society of Electrochemistry in 2006 and as a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2012.

Prof. Bartlett is President Elect of the International Society of Electrochemistry, a Council Member of the Bioelectrochemical Society and serves on the international editorial advisory boards of Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics and the Journal of Electrochemistry. He is Chair of the Gordon Conference in Electrochemistry for 2016.

15.45 keynote lecture Thomas J. Schmidt (ETH Zurich)

Professor Thomas J. Schmidt is the Chair of Electrochemistry at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, combined with the appointment as Head of the Electrochemistry Laboratory at Paul Scherrer Institute in Villigen, Switzerland. Since 2014 Prof. Schmidt is Director of the Swiss Competence Center for Energy Research (SCCER) Heat & Electricity Storage.

The group of prof. Schmidt aims to advance the scientific and technological understanding of electrochemical energy storage and conversion specifically in the context of a sustainable energy system, in which renewable energy is required to be stored in secondary batteries or chemicals as e.g., hydrogen and (re-)converted into electricity. The research is focused on devices like secondary batteries – specifically Li-based systems -, polymer electrolyte fuel cells, electrolyzers and redox-flow cells, respectively.

For all outlined devices prof. Schmidt does not only develops fundamental understanding of materials on atomic and molecular level (electrochemical materials sciences and electrocatalysis), but also on the applied development of technical cells and devices, e.g., fuel cell systems.
